Iraqi parliament to vote on remaining Cabinet candidates
Associated Press
BAGHDAD: Iraq's parliament is set to vote on the remaining candidates for Cabinet seats amid deep divisions over the portfolios for the defense and interior ministries.

The parliament's deputy speaker, Hassan al-Kaabi, says Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi submitted overnight the names of eight candidates who were already rejected on an October session when parliament approved other Cabinet members.

He says today's vote could be disrupted.

Al-Kaabi warned that further delays could have a negative impact on the security situation in Iraq.

In a letter to lawmakers, Prime Minister Abdul-Mahdi said he can submit other names within two days in case his proposals are rejected.
